Dedication to Martha M. Burnell 

To Miss Burnell, former principal of the Training School, we lovingly 
dedicate this forty-first volume of Alpha. Her life and personality have 
been and will continue to be an inspiration to all of us with whom she came 
in contact. We commemorate the various phases of her work by appro- 
priate plates for divisions of activities and organizations recorded in our 

To the Alpha Board: 

My teaching began in the State of Maine in the autumn months of 1887, 
after receiving my diploma from the Gorham State Normal School; thence 
on to a country school in the mountains of New Hampshire, and soon to 
Concord, its capital. During my short principalship of the Rumford School 
in Concord, I conceived the idea of further study, and was directed to the 
Bridgewater State Normal School— that glowing forge of education where 
Albert Gardner Boyden was principal. 

Mr. Frank Ford Murdock, first principal of the North Adams Normal 
School (likewise its first president when the school became a college) was 
instructor in geography at Bridgewater. He was a great teacher. His work 
attracted wide attention, and he was given charge of the teaching of geo- 
graphy in the city schools of Chelsea to which I had strayed after my courses 
at Bridgewater, and a live term or two in the fishing town of Rockport. Dr. 
Albert Boyden asked me to come to the eighth grade in the Training School 
(1895). His genial, contemplative attitude toward our interests stimulated 
us, always, to try new ventures. His was a great gift. 

Arthur Clarke Boyden, who was vice-principal with his father, outlived 
the principalship, and became Bridgewater's first president. He was a 
teacher never to be forgotten; and some of us thought the old school had 
lost what it was out to get, by placing in an executive position, one who 
could create in his students a real urge to think. When the Junior High 
School opened, Dr. Arthur Boyden asked me to become principal of the 
Training School, for we had been steadily losing Mr. Brenelle Hunt, then 
principal, to the rarer, upper air of the psychology classes. To us older teach- 
ers he has always seemed our Training School Principal, but psychology was 
his bent. We were glad, indeed, that he continued to work in Bridgewater, 
where his brilliant mind still scintillates — an ornament to the college. 

Dr. Zenos Edmund Scott, our sceond president, brought an inspiring 
conception of education which the college will never lose. All of us were 
grateful for his penetrating study of our problems as they were, for his quick, 
time-saving decisions, and for his breadth of knowledge of educational 
movements, and wide acquaintance with educators — all of which he shared 
with us so generously. 

The year 1938 marked the close of my work in Bridgewater. It also marked 
the close of President John Joseph Kelly's first year of administration. With 
us many years as a highly appreciated teacher, his continued consideration, 
and always gracious interest remain-— "a song and a silence in the heart." 

Martha May Burnell 
Brookline, January 16, 1939. 



Within thy life we grew; 
The task you set we knew: 
To burn thy beacon bright, 
Where fail the rays of right. 


O Alma Mater, thy children strive 

To keep thy faith alive 

O Alma Mater, we sing for thee 

This song of loyalty. 

O Alma Mater, thy voice alone 

Will guide in paths unknown. 

Within thy life we sang 
Of love and peace that rang 
Throughout thy sounding halls 
Now memories in thy walls. 

Beyond thy life we raise 
Thy worthy name in praise 
Where e'er we chance to be 
We honor B. T. C. 

Walter Nardelli, '33

After four years together it is inevitable that a group of students should develop 
certain qualities which characterize that group. Our class has been no exception. 
Enthusiastic participation in all the varied phases of life in our college, whether schol- 
astic, social, or athletic; a gradual steady maturing without the loss, happily, of its 
sense of humor, love for fun, easy comradeship and informality — all these belong to 
the class of '39. It is only fitting that a yearbook should be the tangible expression of 
the essence of the class it honors. This the editor and staff of Alpha have tried to do. 
They will feel more than repaid if, when looking through these pages, now and in the 
years to come, happy memories of work and play with classmates will be recalled to 
mind, if, herein you will sense the underlying spirit of your class. 


Our heartfelt thanks to 

Miss Pope, for her invaluable financial advice, 

Miss Nye, for making ours a more beautiful book, 

Miss Davis, for giving us the practical advice and information so welcome to the staff, 

Miss Vining, our new advisor, for giving so generously of her time, energy, and en- 

And those members of the class who have consciously or unconsciously contributed 
to the making of a yearbook which could not otherwise have been.

"It's white," says Damon Murphy. "It's black," says Pythias 
Albertini. That's to be expected when these famous feudsters get 
together, but their friendship is easily discernable under violent 
"rubbing". Give Barto a set of golf clubs and a set of dice and he'll 
make the world his own. Barto is famous for his spaghetti feeds, 
and his quiet, frank and sincere manner. He is always testing the 
practicability of teaching methods by naive and unconsciously witty 
questions that roll the class in the aisles. 


French Club, Library Club, Women's > 

A love of reading and a retentive mind have formed Barbara's 
background of valuable information. She takes advantage of college 
activities which satisfy her appreciation of literature. She saves 
her grand sense of humor for her intimates but the story of her losing 
vocal fight with a steam shovel while out training has gotten into 
circulation. Barbara's clear-cut features and profile received fame 
in Campus Comment's front page picture: Beauties and the Bust. 
Her quiet, unassuming manner and voice seem to reflect her inner 


Athletic Association. 


Garden Club, Kindergarten-Primary Club, Topics of the Day Club 

Anne's innocent eyes and expressive mouth add to the effective- 
ness of her unconscious humor. A great yearning for the southland 
crops out in her drawl. Anne can't stand cats or a week-end in the 
dorm. She takes art, drama, and sociology but doesn't let them take 
the curl out of her lovely hair. Afternoon naps, movies, reading in 
the bath tub, talking about her relatives, are some of her extra-curri- 
cular activities. Anne's mind and tongue leap over mental con- 
nectives so quickly she leaves us grasping at logic. 


Men's Club, Men's Athletic Association, Captain of Basketball 

The answer to a coach's prayer, John is the lanky master of the 
long shot on the basketball floor, dynamite with a baseball bat, shot 
put or javelin, and a flash with track; and quiet and modest as every 
sport hero should be. Long John has no bad habits save for an occas- 
ional indulgence in a ham sandwich. He was for three long years 
the most eligible unattached man about campus. Even if John asks 
of others only things he can do himself, that doesn't really narrow 
down the list of his possible requests.

President of Library Club, Chairman of Lecture Fund, Glee Club 

A five-four combination of intellectualite and socialite. As the 
former, Jane reads current books and arranges for lectures. On the 
social side, she sings in several organizations, puts her dramatic 
talent to work coaching the Library Club in its winning play, dances 
joyously and skillfully, and plays a severe game of tennis. Such a 
varied taste reveals her vitality and animation which are reflected 
in the crispness of her voice and her matching clearcut, trim, personal 




Secretary of S. C. A., Dramatic Club, Glee Club 

He is affable and artistic and his intimates realize his heart is 
on the stage with his pitch pipe, make-up and wigs. Four years 
have shown us that he knows the secret of not worrying. On week- 
day nights he serves as guardian of administration building and on 
week ends he figures his time is his own. Frank served S. C. A. quiet- 
ly, but efficiently as keeper of the minutes; and yes, Frank, the Cape 
is fascinating.

She's little, continually on the go; and her lovely sparkling eyes 
always seem to be asking "What's going to happen next." Something 
usually does, and it will be fun if Rita has a hand in it. Rita's tastes 
are modern, — good swing and new hair styles. Behind her irrepres- 
sible good spirits, she's sensitive and earnest — a fact which she won't 
always admit, even to herself. To use her own slang, she's one of 
the "peebo" kids. . «

Head of Soccer, Head of Et Cetera Sports, Day Student Council 

Calm and assured in class, Mary is a flash on the hockey field 
and basketball court, whether playing, refereeing or organizing. Inde- 
pendent and self-sufficient in her actions and opinions, she has her 
own unique system for reading all the latest novels. Unassuming, 
yet determined, she greets life and her friends with gay nonchalance. 

Page seventeen 


Secretary of Science Club, W. A. A. Representative 

One-third of a blonde three-some, Marion bubbles over with 
enthusiasm and gay chatter. Expressive hands and a spontaneous 
laugh are integral parts of her conversation. Capable and precise, 
she belies her slight stature and femininity. When not cutting up 
frogs, chasing chromosomes, or watching the barometer fall, she can 
usually be found counting stitches. Inclined to worry about details, 
she surprises herself by accomplishing without trouble what she 
starts out to do. 


Class Representative, Newman Club, Hobby Club 

Wholesome and jovial, Mary is the picture of health. Having all 
the attributes but none of the deficiencies of the old-fashioned girl, 
she is usually reserved but possesses an infectious giggle. Speaking 
earnestly and with a laugh in her husky voice she invariably ends up 
by saying something entirely different from what she meant when 
she started. Mary may be found absorbed in the latest novel, look- 
ing up someone's record in the office, or vainly attempting to pro- 
nounce someone's name for the first time. 


Dramatic Club, Women's Athletic Association 

Self-sufficient in a truly feminine manner, Amy works thoroughly 
and conscientiously. Serious in her class work, she favors literature 
and dramatics, in which her careful, precise enunciation is an asset. 
Well-read and keen, she can speak with intelligence on many subjects. 
Amy's well-formed head and even features give her an enviable profile. 


President of W. A. A., Campus Comment, Newman Club 

This tall, slim mainstay of W. A. A. is the personification of the 
organization's ideals. Gerry's graciousness and friendliness give 
her an unusual ability to make others feel at ease. She'll never be a 
Ginger Rogers but she's willing to try even that, if it will add to the 
merriment she loves to share with others. However, Gerry can adapt 
herself as the occasion and her position require. She is top ranking 
basketball player both at college and for the home town and got to 
the top during the Mt. Monadnock episode.

Campus Comment, Newman Club, Kindergarten-Primary Club 

Soft-spoken and unobtrusive, nothing ever seems to bother Marge. 
Always ready for excitement and fun, she and her friends have pepped 
up many a school dance. With her low, hesitant voice, she is a master 
of understatement and her witty remarks are the delight of the class. 
When otherwise unoccupied amuses herself and her friends recalling 
her latest antics or making up lists for scavenger hunts.

Editor of Alpha, Head of Dancing, Student Council 

Versatility personified — that's Jinny. Whether composing a 
melody or dancing to one, wielding a pen or a tennis racket, sprightly 
Jinny is equally adept. A serious discussion spiced with humorous 
comments, a demure manner belied by shining coppery hair and 
sparkling eyes. She has an elfin grace, complemented by sincerity 
and dependability.

Business Manager of Campus Comment, Advertising Manager of

A conscientious worker who is made the man behind many a 
scene, Bob peddles Campus Comments and runs down ads for Alpha. 
As the George of "Leave it to George", he has won our admiration 
for his willingness to pitch in on your task. His interests are in 
musical, biological and dramatic fields. Bob is also well versed on 
the "hows and wheres" of New York City.

A born actor who stole the show our freshman year with a superb 
rendition of Shylock in Miss Moffitt's final production "The Merchant 
of Venice," Bongy has kept up his acting from play to play and year 
to year. He showed us ability on the soccer field and in the school 
paper. The bi-weekly bits of whimsicality known as "Odds and 
Ends" have been widely read and universally enjoyed.

Happy-go-lucky in the face of the most dire calamities — even 
car troubles, Gert has a smile for everyone. A grand sport, she is 
ready at a moment's notice to fall in with the latest plans. Tall, 
erect, and determined, she is nevertheless open to suggestion and a 
popular member of the crowd of which she has been a four-year 


W. A. A. Representative, Topics of the Day Club, Garden Club 

The active, sportsminded girl and serious student are concealed 
behind a face which is distinctly exotic. On the basketball court 
and ice rink we admire her ability, in classes we depend on her solu- 
tion to the problem which had us all puzzled. A chosen few pene- 
trate the veneer of reserve to a Dot whose fine sense of loyalty is ac- 
companied by her ability to have fun. Her weaknesses are the newest 
styled sport shoes and telling secrets in her sleep. 




Lecture Fund Committee, Secretary of German Club, Topics of the Day 

Whether making arrangements for the next lecture fund speaker, 
taking notes for German Club, catching up on the sociology assign- 
ments, or going through the torture of History activities, Meredith is 
constantly on the go. With business-like efficiency she hurries from 
one class to the next where she takes rapid, copious notes. Taking 
part in many outside activities, she finds her ability to concentrate 
on the work at hand a decided advantage. Outspoken and possessing 
decided opinions, Meredith can talk to anyone and everyone with 
the greatest of ease.

Betty, the short member of the Brine-Hill combination, has 
lovely dark-blonde hair and eyes that crinkle when she talks or laughs. 
An infectious smile breaking into a contagious giggle is an indication 
of her jolly personality. Brisk in action and abrupt in speech — she 
is keen and spirited. Familiar to the geog and math classes is her 
long drawn-out "w-e-l-l" as she frantically formulates the answer 
to an unexpected question. Witty comments and snappy comebacks 
provide mutual enjoyment for Betty and the South Door Gang. 


Campus Comment, Topics of the Day Club, Men's Club 

Ray is Bridgewater's representative in the service who trots into 
the navy yard every Wednesday night. For four years he has been noted 
for his Crysto-mints and "cuts", amassing an all time high in the 
total of each. His actions fail to hide his ability, though, for a special 
report or a recitation will reveal an analytical mind and a twelve 
cylinder vocabulary. Flipdo's car and shirts add to the color of our 


Class Representative, W. A. A. 

Completely self-assured, Helen knows what's what and as the 
Dorothy Dix of the class, what to do about it. Keen and penetrating, 
she uses her wit both for amusement and as a weapon. Helen has 
definite opinions and expresses them pungently, punctuating her 
remarks with little emphatic gestures. Always late for class, she is 
nevertheless usually on time when it comes to chauffeuring her many 
and willing passengers. The little Dutch Maid's accounts of life at 
Falmouth make it an exciting place. 


Literary Editor of Alpha, Library Club, Topics of the Day Club 

Tall, capable and Swedish, Judy is ready to argue dogmatically 
and intelligently on any and every subject, any and every hour. It 
is then that one gets a glimpse of her vast store of information ac- 
quired from many a library shelf and current magazine. She lends 
her talent to the production of a better Alpha and a more interesting 
Campus Comment. This out-of-the-ordinary girl relaxes in just as 
different a way showing moments of being a Russian ballerina, a 
Jenny Lind or just a plain paradox.

There is no anti-toxin against her laugh and no shushing can 
subdue the jingling of the jewelry she wears so well. IVIarge has a 
handsome, dynamic face and figure, a very merry disposition, and a 
mania for playing "swing" records. She sings both swing and sweet 
music. IVIarge attends every social affair and her presence is an 
attraction. That "lite cut" sign on her door may mean study, read- 
ing, or playing. Her ideals and feelings are expressed impulsively 
and forcefully. IVIarge condenses her classes into notes by an angular 
handwriting and green ink. 


Glee Club, Student Council, W. A. A. 

Dot is tall and colorful and distinguished by her lovely red-blonde 
hair. She has an inquiring mind and the ability to express her well 
formed opinions in arguments that are the bright spot of the philoso- 
phy and history classes and the Topics of the Day Club meetings. 
As conductor of the Somerset Express, Dot makes her daily jaunt 
with regularity. Her twin of the Junior Class is, surprisingly enough, 
no relation. 


Kindergarten-Primary Club, Women's Athletic Association 

Rosy cheeks and sparkling blue eyes give Chis a bright appearance. 
She sees the funny side of life, even in her own mistakes, and tells 
them in her deliberate and laughing manner. With a ready giggle 
she is a master of the pun and a collector of song hits. As a fresh- 
man her lunches made her the talk of the commuters' room. 


Head of Archery, Kindergarten-Primary Club, Garden Club 

An ardent basketball fan, Elsie has given her moral support to 
the varsity squad. She participates in archery, basketball, and ping- 
pong (about which she can now show some of her huskier classmates 
a thing or two) just for the fun of playing; she laughs loudest at her 
own mistakes. Pert and peppy, she sports the snappiest of collegiate 
clothes and an individual haircut, both entirely in keeping with her 
personality. Devilish eyes and spontaneous laughter spice her run- 
ning flow of conversation.

Sleepy Time Gal around school but energetic when pleasure bent. 
Her tiny feet win admiration but her tiny voice gets exasperation — 
from the faculty. Evie's activities include acting as chauffeur to 
her gang, knitting, and singing hymns off-key. Her grin centers 
not around her mouth but in the laughter wrinkles around her eyes. 
She and her roommate live together in harmony because of long- 
standing friendship and a kindred interest in art. Clothes, furnish- 
ings, and work reveal her good taste. Her personality can be summed 
up in the words, pleasing, agreeable, and amiable.

B. T. C. chief politician. He's willing to argue on any election. 
But sad for him, sunflowers die, and election bets come due, in Nov- 
ember. His speed-wagon has been the chief means of transportation 
for extra-curricular functions; and how he burns up the roads and 
the cops! Wes is a storehouse of anecdotes and stories. Among the 
best of campus dressers, he tops all by flaunting a full-dress marine 
reserve uniform. Although he has been known to blush in history 
class, you can usually be sure this marine has landed and has the 
situation well in hand. 



Secretary of Orchestra, Science Club, Men's Glee Club 

He stole the march on most of us by leaping into the star role in 
a dramatic club production less than two months after he arrived 
on campus — and did an expert job. Since then, he has kept up his 
platform appearances with a position as violinist in the orchestra 
and for a time as a member of the Men's Glee Club. Miss Rand 
finds him an invaluable general assistant in the music department. 
Frank is a whiz as he combines mathematical ability in geog and 
science classes. 


Secretary of Dormitory Council, W. A. A. Representative, Student 

Tall, sporty and impatient, Gert is frank almost to the point of 
being brusque. When she's not learning the latest dance step she's 
looking for someone with whom to waste time. However she cuts up 
a N. Y. Times each week, reads for lit, music and art, and reads for 
her own amusement. Formals, socials, movies, sports— all find her 
present. A genius for friendship and camaraderie, Gert is one of the 
best liked girls in college. Although susceptible to teasing, she is 
so sincere she isn't made the victim long.

Ruler of S. C. A. finance, and king of Mardi Gras, Clem is monarch 
of all he surveys. His four years' work on the basketball court has 
been outstanding. Whether it's receiving a favor from the inner 
office or getting down a book from the top shelf he accomplishes 
either in his matter of fact way. He's the college connoisseur of 
dance orchestras and a witty discussionist in the class room.

With the serenity befitting a senior, Mary calmly takes life as it 
comes in the classroom. Outside, and with the proper environment, 
she is ready for fun and nonsense. Usually keeping her decided

That was Olive pitching for us. Remember the time you were

unfailing willingness to help with any work to be done, the ability

spontaneous sense of humor and an infectious grin — these are the 
things which mean to us— "O. Day."

Her remarks, wittily yet convincingly expressed, offer food for thought. 
She's an ardent knitting enthusiast and has some enviable results.

Running for trains and classes, and keeping order in the musical

He has ideas on everything from history, through calculus, to food. 
Jimmie is as indispensable in the social affairs of the college as he

loves to dance, he refused to join a certain cooperative. He never

The careful planning in her own living is reflected in the way 
Dutchie runs her several extra-curricular activities; and it contributed 
to the success of Mardi Gras. One of the species rara of natural 
blondes, she dresses well, displaying good taste here as everywhere 
else. Despite her faithful study habits, she is one of those strange 
people who find time to read the latest literature. It was Dutchie's 
problem to plan our social calendar, and although this took time, it 
in no way interfered with her own social calendar.

This all-around athlete is the junior edition of his coach. Besides 
a grand record on the athletic field, Al had taken time to try his hand 
at the art of living. Even though his sense of humor may be doubted, 
his love of a good time can never be. His serious side is manifested 
by his work in math and science. Al's camera has stored away for 
him not only fame, but the most complete record of the class' four 
years at Bridgewater.

President of Men's Club, Dramatic Club, Newman Club. 

Here's a fellow who thrives on work and trouble. This true son 
of Erin, who is at his best when the going's the hardest, piloted both 
Men's Club and the club of men to successful years. Genial in spirit 
and unassuming in air, Harry ranks with the popular. He relaxes 
in Dramatic Club productions and on athletic trips, being the owner 
of another illustrious "steed" that's led its owner on fun and frolic 
from Barrel House Road to points south and west.

Efforts devoted conscientiously toward getting the most out of 
her college education have earned Mary commendable results. Al- 
though certain of her appendages have the unique but annoying habit 
of occasionally getting out of order, she takes such occurrences calmly 
in her stride. Always a ready and willing participant in round table 
discussions, she intersperses her rapid conversation with frequent 
appreciative laughs. 


Chairman of Chapel Committee, Treasurer of Dormitory Council, 
Glee Club 

Blond, wholesome good-looks identify Helen and when you hear 
a merry giggle that sets you smiling too, Helen is somewhere near, 
probably laughing at one of Phil's jokes. Her deft characterization 
of Helen of Troy in the play competition proves her cleverness and wit. 
Helen figures and figures on office accounts, and beams when "they 
check"; when college is out she beams ail the more because she is 
off to her beloved Canada. She is a sane combination of scholastic 
and social participation. 


Orchestra, Glee Club, Women's Athletic Association 

She's ready, willing, and able — with the ink eradicator. Playing 
the violin, piano, and singing are her musical enthusiasms. Her 
personality is as unruffled as her carefully waved hair. But her 
composure received a set back when she came down with the mumps 
after the Soph-Junior Prom. Rachel has a weakness for blonde 
hair and pink cheeks. She is a charter member of an especially 
united gang on the third floor of Woodward.

His swaggering long stride and hearty laugh have become a part 
of Bridgewater tradition. Phil has ability in argumentation, soccer, 
music, and the gentle art of the "rib". He's the sparkplug of a stag 
party, of political maneuver in campus organizations, and of the 
latest prank or gag. His dark hair looks either as though it had just 
had an electrical shock or as though it were so frustrated it no longer 
cared. Phil is the fellow they keep behind the bars because he doesn't 
bring you any mail. With tenors Bailey and Paterson and another

A frequent occupant of the Social Room, Dot spends her spare 
time reading the latest novel, knitting a sweater, or crocheting an

youngsters presented her with a case of poison-ivy. Equally vivid 
are her memories of her senior year when she joined the ranks of the

Gayly cynical, Lilly is, surprisingly enough, one of the youngest 
members of our class. A person of quickly changing moods, she has 
her ups and downs. Her dry humor, punctuated with raised eye- 
brows and a knowing laugh, adds spice to her comments in science 
and geography classes. Lilly is one of those rare but striking brown- 
eyed blondes with a peach-and-cream complexion. She spends her 
spare time concocting a delicious spaghetti dinner or, when the mood 
is upon her, dashing off some really good poetry.

Mr. Reynolds' Girl Friday, Because Marge has developing talent 
and sincere appreciation of art, she takes every available art course. 
She matches her roommate grin for grin, but not limb for limb. Her 
high cheek bones tuck her eyes out of sight and her chin tightens into 
a triangle when she is amused. Thoroughly reliable in all she does 
Marge gives time and care to her extra-curricular duties. Flowers, 
sports, and out-of-door life are minor enthusiasms to her major — art.

Small, dark and pleasant is the keeper of the Women's Athletic 
Association bank book. In spite of her diminutive size, she keeps 
large sums in perfect order and handles her car like a veteran. Pos- 
sessor of a still, small voice, Lillian can nevertheless use it to advan- 
tage in Glee Club. A passion for all things mathematical and scienti- 
fic is balanced by a love for music. Capable and orderly she greets 
all with a friendly smile.

Deliberate in speech and action, Adeline has obligingly kept the

not engrossed in some sort of artwork or music report, she may be

ber, tap-dancing. Adeline has been a friendly and loyal four-year 
member of a particular college triumvirate.

tongue will probably get him there. Athletically he has played 
around in basketball and baseball.

Dora does something and then wonders why she did it. How- 
ever she can have no sad after-thoughts for her pictures — she photo-

is collecting jokes which she passes on in that laughter-filled voice. 
Her mania for hitting typewriter keys has been developed for Campus 
Comment and work for her own profit. An ever increasing ward- 
robe makes her an attractive teacher-to-be, and her ability and ambi-

Blond, blue-eyed, and tiny, Joanna nevertheless has a quiet

even from her room mate. She talks very slowly and fixes her eyes 
on you very seriously as she talks or listens. Joanna teaches in the 
Saturday morning art classes for the training school pupils and is in 
charge of the training school library. She has kept hidden her ability 
to play the violin. As a member of W. A. A. Joanna plays baseball,

As one of the loveliest members of our class, Betty has had her 
even features preserved for the enjoyment of posterity in the form of 
a clay replica. Whether over at the gym showing the dancing en-

and completely unassuming. Her exuberance is apparent in her 
rapid movements, ready laugh, and lively conversation.

Rosina's slim figure is a direct contrast to her capacity for pep,

at the same time carefree and full of fun. She uses these very qualities 
to keep Hobby Club running smoothly and to make her geog and his-

2nd Vice-President of Day Student Council, Glee Club, A Cappella 

Possessing an unusual singing and speaking voice, Alice has not 
limited her talents to her music and literature classes, but has been 
prominent in dramatic productions and musical organizations. With 
a calm nonchalance she offers her decided opinions on the topic 
under discussion and organizes material for her term paper at the 
eleventh hour. Class notes offer ample evidence of the incurable 
"doodler". Although friendly toward all, Alice favors her intimates 
with a steadfast loyalty.

A musical stand-out. As a good tenor and a better pianist Walter 
successfully combines his background of Beethoven and Gershwin 
in addition to composing a la Hannigan. Unfortunate are those who 
only know him in class because his academic efforts hide from most 
of us his rollicking humor and appreciation of a good time. When 
he is serious he's very serious, and when you're blue "Doc" can ad- 
minister the cure. 


Business Manager of Alpha, Chairman of Scholarship Committee,

The chief of Bridgewater's literati and proponent of modern art, 
be it literature or painting. As a guiding spirit in the year-book 
and contributor to the school paper, Walter has been constantly 
enriching the literary tradition of our college. Walter is an ardent 
naturalist using it as a recreation and as a background for his work 
as camp counselor during the summer. His interesting background 
makes him a welcome member of a round table, but his forte as a 
writer of cynical and flippant verse is not as well known as it should be.

and at her very approach the most secure curtain will fall. Her extra- 
curricular activities include the founding of the Menorah Chapter, 
make-up of Campus Comment, snapping of candid shots and con- 
suming hot fudge sundaes. Although she gets done what has to be 
done, her most highly developed technique is just relaxing.

Charm and assurance, plus the ability to say the right thing at 
the right time, are responsible for Mary's success with her duties in 
the social functions of the college. Apparently casual and without 
a worry in the world, she somehow completes details for weekends

ferences at Dudley's he reports to class, displaying a remarkable 
memory for dates, names, and places. Less widely known to his class 
mates are his abilities as an amateur naturalist. The identification 
of trees, birds, and flowers are as simple as the A, B, C's. Cliff is also 
a perpetrator of extemporaneous and hilarious verse and wit.

Vivacious, bubbly, never lacking in words, Rick holds first place 
for seeing and knowing all. Never at a loss for a fluent answer, she 
drives her own car almost as well as she talks, and that is a high com- 
pliment for Rick's verbal propensities are famous. Quick to flare up 
and as quick to laugh it off, she states her opinions and organizes 
parties with decision and finality. Having the knack of making any 
story funny, her enthusiasm is contagious. 


Glee Club, Kindergarten-Primary Club, Hobby Club 

Her generally unsuspected talent as a mimic amuses her friends. 
Her collection of elephants may have a background but we've failed 
to find it. Her unexpected snappy cracks often startle people because 
Mary is thought of as being reserved. They don't take into con- 
sideration the vitality of her brown curly hair or the snap of her 
brown eyes. Mary and Barb have a priceless object of art in their 
room, "souvenir of the supers". To Mary goes the prize for the 
funniest faux-pas of four years. When a rap which unfortunately 
turned out to be the house-mother, sounded on her door she called, 
"Come in if you're good looking, stay out if you're not."

A slow drawl and matching serene composure distinguish the 
imperturbable Helen. Taking life as it comes, she seldom lets her 
calm be disturbed, and is a perfect balance for Rick. A flair for dress 
designing is revealed in clothes chosen with perfect taste and em- 
phasized by individual touches. Faultless grooming completes a 
person of poise and tranquility broken only by a giggle that breaks 
out, of all places, in sociology class. 


Class Representative, Topics of the Day Club, Kindergarten-Primary 

Earnest and assured, Helen gives her reports and opinions in her 
clear decisive manner. With the same unruffled calm she completes 
assignments or assumes leadership when needed. In spite of her 
slender stature, Helen is an ardent out-door girl and lists archery 
and skiing as her favorite sports. Although a four-year adherent 
to the same gang, she has a friendly word or smile for everyone.

Tall, blonde, blue-eyed, and with a swell grin, her radiant appear- 
ance makes her popular with people even before acquaintance. Syl's 
accomplishments include midnight mountain climbing, bicycling 
and making fudge and cake. Her interests lead her to movies, novels, 
admiration of Shakespeare and translation of them into modern 
vernacular, and to sorting shells in a cold lab. Syl has an uninten-

Vice-President of Menorah Club, Science Club, Campus Comment 

If worry will reap a person anything, Rosie will have a bountiful 
harvest for he can "out-fuss" any two people in the class. Famed 
for the length of his geog papers and literature reports, Lenny can 
never be accused of shunning work, on the other hand he goes out of 
his way to dig it up. Geography, math and science courses have 
failed to down this Latin school alumnus. 


First Vice-President of Hobby Club, Women's Athletic Association 

Pleasant and cooperative, Cynthia can always be depended upon 
to do her bit and more. Her cultured, well-modulated voice is a 
pleasure to hear. The Cambridge Lass invariably can be found 
hobby-ing, reading a music assignment, or preparing a history lesson. 


President of S. C. A., Glee Club, Campus Comment 

She speaks in chapel, dances smoothly, swings a mean golf club, 
gives history reports, is a good conversationalist, and interesting to 
meet. Connie has a sense of humor and knows when to use it. Be- 
ware of her if she has it in for you, but — she cools off soon. Spec- 
tacles atop a fluff of bangs, and a ring on her thumb and fore finger 
are the distinguishing marks of the S. C. A. president.

Editor of Campus Comment, Science Club, Newman Club 

A firm believer in women's rights, Eleanor can usually be found 
in the midst of a lively discussion. She is a combination of French 
vivacity and Irish good humor. Eleanor's sport interests are golf, 
tennis, swimming, and walking. A breathless voice, hearty laugh, 
quick gestures, and eloquent eyes are aids to her expression. Stacks 
of old newspapers under the beds, copy for Campus Comment scatter- 
ed over the room, and tapping typewriters prove she has a drop of 
printer's ink in her veins. A glutton for subjects she elects history, 
sciences, and English.

able and contributive in French Club affairs, Ed does all in his silent

The man's man who decided to present a new edition of himself 
senior year, Charlie's achievements have been athletic and literary, — 
veteran back in soccer, number one on the tennis team, field man 
in track, and coach and critic in dramatic fields. As president of 
A. A. we found him combining experience and ability. C. Shaw is 
noted for his philosophy, puns, parties, and pals. His angel-mania 
is revealed in the typically Shavian toast "Gentlemen, the Queen." 


President of Kindergarten-Primary Club, Campus Comment, Wom- 
en's Athletic Association 

One of the nicest persons in the class is Madeline. She shows a 
graciousness of manner and a personal appearance of taste and neat- 
ness. A rich, spontaneous chuckle shows her appreciation of a good 
story or joke. Interested in primary grades Madeline has worked 
for the development of the K. P; working in the garden also appeals 
to her. The lucky recipient of many letters from home containing 
jokes and cartoons Madeline posts them on her window blotter for 
the amusement of visitors.

His cocky felt hat and Gorham jacket tack the adjectives of "dap- 
per" and "sporty" to his name. Cliff spends a good deal of time 
transporting our athletic teams or studying in the geology room for

this short year with us.

An apparently studious girl who does her playing at home week 
ends. Knits like Madam DeFarge and can finish a sweater in no time 
flat. Her radio imitation of hysterical laughter startles unless one 
is warned. Marion is a crackerjack forward in basketball and an avid 
reader of contemporary novels. Although she loves to dance, her 
demonstrations of the latest steps are apt to be variations or im- 
provisations on the original step. 


Day Student Council, Hobby Club, Kindergarten-Primary Club 

Although always laughing and ready for fun, Mary has an extra- 
ordinary capacity for worrying, for she is not easily satisfied. Friendly 
and pleasant, she nevertheless stubbornly argues her points. A 
member of the Rockland gang, Mary much prefers dancing to giving 
oral reports. 


Secretary of Kindergarten-Primary Club 

"Naomie" is busy yet jolly — two characteristics by which you 
may know the "assistant dean". A welcome addition to the dormitory 
in her sophomore year, as a senior she capably took over the dictator- 
ship of Woodward for eight weeks. Her New England conscience is 
happily modified by a refreshing sense of the ridiculous, and to hear 
her laugh is to laugh yourself. To add a final merry touch, Naomi 
is a true jitterbug, and to watch her reactions to a swing record is 
one of the delights of the dormitory. /Z * //

Secretary of Tillinghast, Treasurer of Science Club, W. A. A. Board 

Although Joe is never smileless, she lives as if she had a purpose 
in life. A hard worker and a good student, she is meticulous in 
thought and action. As the two-thirds of that Tillinghast trium- 
virate, Connors and Farnham, have learned through experience, 
Joe can argue well and unfemininely. One secret of her success is 
that she takes good notes, can read her own writing, and uses the 
notes. Interested in the athletic program, she drives a volley ball 
almost into the floor and her returns in badminton almost singe 
the feathers off the bird.

Dark hair and eyes, sparkling teeth and rosy cheeks, together 
with her bright clothes, give Clara a colorful appearance. Argu- 
mentative and loquacious, she adds spice and vigor to any class dis- 
cussion. Her personal and candid opinions freely expressed and ac- 
companied by a disarming smile keep the class in stitches. Clara 
spends the rest of her energy on skating and swimming.

Vice-President of Library Club, Social 

Pleasing personality, nice clothes, and keen sense of humor — 
that's Fran. Recognized by her peculiar IVIilton drawl and her own 
individual style of writing. One of the constant stragglers from 
Wood who arrives to class late. Her hobbies — bowling, playing cards, 
dancing, going to plays, and wearing ankle socks. Woodward's 
likable fire captain, whose chief ambition is to have a fire drill at two 
o'clock in the morning. 


President of Dormitory Council, Treasurer of Kindergarten-Primary 

Known for her sincerity and naive manner. Her loves include 
tricky hats, ping-pong, taking pictures, and playing Chinese Checkers, 
behind the protection of a lite cut sign. The "vie" in her room is a 
magnet for swing fans. Ambitious and energetic, Jean loves to dance 
and spreads enjoyment by her infectious good spirits. A ten page 
booklet of thoughts, stories, and jokes collected and written during 
the knitting of a face cloth is a preliminary to her ambition to write 
a book. Jean is a star pupil of Mr. Doner and a chronic hair twister.

Brown-eyed, soft-voiced, and demurely pretty, Helen belies an 
old adage, for there is a well-trained mind behind her charming 
appearance. A combination New- York-Cape-Cod accent is one of 
her characteristics, drama and the arts are her particular interests 
(remember her as David Copperfield's mother), and pitcher collect- 
ing is her hobby. Her best friends will tell you of her power to make 
them giggle when they most need cheering up. 


Art Editor of Alpha, Chairman of the Civic Committee, Library Club 

Ruth always has her work done because of the excellent power 
of concentration she possesses. Besides accomplishment in required 
subjects she has been successful in sketching and handicrafts. She 
has contributed artistic ideas for many of our formal dances, for the 
year book, for posters, for the decoration of rooms for social affairs. 
Decided in her ideas and opinions Ruth is self-sufficient and in- 
dependent. From the confusion of dormitory life she chooses to 
have a few friends rather than a large circle of acquaintances.

Tiny and neat, everything about Louise is in its proper place from 
her hair to her library notes. In her matter-of-fact way she briskly 
gets things done. A friend in need, she has been a blessing to many a

almost equally tiny sidekick, she now offers plenty of competition 
during spare moments. Her pleasant smile breaks forth easily into 
a delightful chuckle.

Irene has been a welcome addition to our class this year, and she 
has won many friends through her charm and friendliness. She 
attended Wheaton College for two years and then spent three years 
at the Wheelock School. Following her graduation, she taught in 
a nursery school until coming to Bridgewater for her degree. Judg- 
ing from her activities here, it is easy to see that Irene's chief interests 
are literature, dramatics, knitting, and children.

he'll be a dictator with fifty per cent of the class of '39 as his much

regular performance as a good all-around Boy Scout. Henry certain- 
ly did us a good deal by putting into effect an excellent program for

President of Tillinghast Dormitory, Treasurer of Garden Club, Glee 

Short, dark, and mature, Kay is a person of importance in Til- 
linghast where she has gained the friendship of all. She makes a 
precise appearance with her smooth dark hair and sharply defined 
features. Her attitude is one of genuineness and sincerity. Kay's 
work in classes shows her to be sure of herself, exact in her knowledge, 
and capable of searching analysis of problems. Shopping trips to 
Brockton are one of her diversions. Perhaps the most noticeable 
features about her are the intenseness of her brown eyes and the 
perfection of her teeth.

Miriam's nose for news and her amazing capacity for finding out 
what's what and who did it have made her a competent news editor 
for Campus Comment. As alive as her red hair, she capably conducts 
club meetings or follows her cultural pursuits, taking in operas, 
plays, and exhibits. Other interests include traveling, dancing, 
skiing, camping, and entertaining. As enthusiastic in her friend- 
ships as in her activities, Miriam expresses her opinions subtly but

As a "benevolent despot" of Woodward Barb performs her duties 
so that the girls enjoy her reign and Miss Henderson keeps calm. 
Her room has won fame as the place to find the tools, the "vac", the 
keys, a crate of oranges, and the latest books. She often holds the 
fourth hand in Wood's second floor bridge brigade and shows a weak- 
ness for Chinese Checkers. Pleasant, smiling, and well groomed, 
Barb goes about her duties capably and confidently. She should 
adopt her successful combination of black skirt and sweater lightened 
by a string of pearls as a uniform. Clothes from the house of Torrey 
show that Barb takes time out to sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam.

President of Glee Club, Dormitory Council, Orchestra 

Tall, blond and dignified — unless you happen to catch her play- 
ing pillow football in the "corridor stadium" of Wood. Her cor- 
respondence from Alabama is always penned in green — the comple- 
ment of "red". Bit directs the fortress of the Glee Club and plays 
the violin for her own amusement. A true representative of her race 
Bit has beautifully wavy, blond hair, Swedish blue eyes and fair com- 
plexion. A Swedish streak of stubbornness crops^but in her con- 
tribution to class discussions. 



Chairman of Chapel Committee, Orchestra, Campus Comment 

Everyone in Bridgewater knows Dot and Dot knows everyone in 
Bridgewater. She's a follower of shipping news and a lover of nautical 
things. Dot has shown interest in mountain climbing, art, tennis, 
and music. She is proficient in our dormitory specialty — talking 
by the hour— but she arranges her time to include study courses she 
has chosen for their content value. Economics mean something 
in her young life, and Dot keeps an account book to prove it. Purely 
personal piffle— long hair, smiling eyes, lovely teeth.

Lib is never seen without a piece of embroidery or knitting. Her 
latest motif is Mexican. Although she skis enthusiastically in New 
Hampshire, Lib thinks it necessary to diet in school. Conscientiously 
she devotes time to reading, library and art courses. Lib has kept up 
a faithful interest in German for four years. Quiet in manner she 
finds great enjoyment in inveterate reading. Lib stays at the dorm 
during the week but when the weekend rolls around she's a com-

She has eyes that close when she giggles, which is often, and a 
waist that delights those who are buxom. Barb is often worried 
about little things but always ends by laughing them off. They in- 
vented the word "piquant" for her. She adds to the gayety of math 
and music classes. But she'll always be remembered as the "Baby 
Snooks" of the geography and geology classes.

The exuberant member of Woodward's third floor who wakes her 
neighbors graciously with early morning warblings. Red is her 
favorite color and enthusiasm her hobby. However, she takes re- 
sponsibility and loves it as an "assistant to the dean." A bubbling 
two-octave laugh, electric personality, sudden expression and as sud- 
den reserve, and such snappy eyes, belong to Esther alone.

Lib is that subtle humorist from Quincy. Her sly look when 
telling a joke or giggling over some bit of wit is a warning to her com- 
panions. Lib is known for her pungent frankness and well-thought- 
out opinions. This ability to analyze and express vividly and force- 
fully her conclusions finds one tangible outlet in her pithy literary 
criticism. Another outlet for her powers, clever mimicry, is a source 
of enjoyment for her friends. An all-round sportswoman, she con- 
centrates on basketball in the winter and swimming in the summer.

Can this be Bridgewater? It is, so they tell me. It took them only five minutes after 
I arrived to squash me down the corridor from the rotunda to the auditorium (Horace 
Mann, they call it;. Dr Scott brought me out of the fog for five minutes with a wel- 
come and a smile. And with a lecture from Miss Davis to brace me up, I went search- 
ing thru the halls for Room 24 and Room 13. If I hadn't gotten to class, you couldn't 
have blamed me, because I was ducking the sophomore hazing team. I ducked them 
by convincing them I was from the junior high next door. But they got me finally 
and I've got the monkey cap and green tie. 

Sept. 13, 1935 

Acquaintance social. My mistake, that good-looking brunette was no upperclass- 
man. She was Miss Caldwell of the faculty. There's nothing like starting off with a 
bang! But some of the good-lookers are students anyway. 

Sept. 25, 1935 

Two black eyes, a stiff knee, a missing shirt and ripped underwear. No war, just the 
sack rush. My talents were wasted. We lost and Speed Cohen didn't get thrown into 
the pond— but Harry Dunn did. 

Men's banquet too. Perry's orchestra played — but it didn't click. Never mind, Coul- 
ter tried hard enough. No sooner did we get the food down our throats than we had 
to drag the sophomores all around town on a buggy-wagon. Grand finale at the Cam- 
pus with Verne Olsen doing a Sally Rand for Woodward. 

Oct. 13, 1935 

Jugo Mastovic attempted to convince Huffington there was a well at the bottom of the 
Bridgewater standpipe. He should know, he's a local boy — but Huffy soon learns about 
environment — so it was no go. 

Nov. 1, 1935 

Am I cultured, two lectures in a row! John Martin of the New York Times and the 
New York University modern dance group — dancing is what they called it — but Donald 
Duck has a better waddle. Anyway the lady dance director could talk with her hands 
and I learned from Mr. Martin that they now put chromium plated hand rails in re- 
decorated old colonial houses. And only a day to breathe before John Haynes Holmes 
had me wondering whether civilization was worth saving. Don't worry, that was 
only the title of his address.

My first adventure in modern politics. Result; my candidate lost. But after all, 

we did get a good class president — Jerry Connor. 

Dec. 10, 1935 

Our first production — the freshmen banquet. Tuna fish salad in a paper plate bal- 
anced on one knee and hot cocoa, mixing with the wax from the paper cup, on the 
other. Don't tell me I can't balance a budget now. And the way Cliff Proctor brought 
out the co-eds' duck bumps with the health department skeleton. After all when 
you look up from a dance and see a skull staring you in the face you get a thrill. 

Dec. 19, 1935 

The Christmas spirit has hit the faculty — result: a Christmas dinner plus a magician 
plus a Christmas play in the auditorium. At least I got the forks right in the dining

It may be bad luck for you — but we heard the orchestra concert! Amy Ward Durfee,

Men's Club Varieties. Steve Lovett and gang gave their inimitable imitation of the 

girls at a modern dance. A good laugh was had by all. 

March 30, 1936 

Billy Phelps of Yale spoke on contemporary literature. Told us Gertrude Stein wrote 
only one good book and then was so surprised at herself that she has never been able 
to write another good one since. (The book was "Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas".)

But Mr. McGurin, Miss Low and Miss Morris are here to take their places. Carlson

Pants missing, underwear ripped to pieces, torn ligaments, scratched face, but who

The college goes intellectual. Miss Low presents her first Dramatic Club production— 

"Where the Cross is Made" — in chapel.

Landon, like the mixed-up telephone man, found he was at the top of the wrong pole. 
Wes Coulter is displaying a long face and a thin pocketbook. Twenty-one bucks could

The Harvard University Orchestra arrived on thescene, and we wentformal. GleeClub- 
bers introduced to the Harvardians at a special reception. No wonder the increase in 
applications for Glee Club membership last week among the girls. 

Dec. 18, 1936 

The Women's Glee Club broadcast over the radio. Seats in Tillinghast reception 
room sold out hours ahead of time. Good squawking, if you should ask me. Gives 
you that ole Christmas spirit. 

Dec. 22, 1936 

A rush on Emily Post in the library lately. Faculty Christmas dinner tonight. Again 
I kept the forks straight. But how the spoons threw me. Speed Cohen seen running 
after the crowd left, picking up abandoned peanuts. The fellows tried faculty sere- 
nading tonight. Sang Christmas carols under their windows. Result — donuts, 
coffee, cookies, candy, and cake. Doc Arnold sound asleep when we got there — but 
who could blame him— it was 2:00 A. M. 

Jan. 7, 1937

to catch the proper trains. Beds at a premium in every classroom. Ho! Hum! 

Feb. 5, 1937 

Men's Club "Full House". Skipped again. Will have to make out an anti-social 

calendar, if I'm not careful. 

March 19, 1937 

Orchestra concert. Earle Spicer croons "Shortnin' Bread" and brings down the house. 

Miss Rand all smiles again. 

March 30, 1937 

Rockwell Kent told us he painted Alaskan mountains as triangles because they looked 

as though they wanted to be triangles. Whimsical philosophy. 

April 15, 1937 

Another modern dance program. This time by our local artists. I still don't know 
what half of the prancing means. But by the time I've seen three or four more of 
these things I think I'll begin to like them. 

April 28, 1937 

The greatest event yet. Carl Sandburg spoke on folksongs and tall tales — and can he 

tell them! 

Of fog so thick we shingled the barn and six feet out on the fog, 

Of a mountain railroad curve where the engineer in his cab can touch the caboose 

and spit in the conductor's eyes, 
Of the old man's whiskers: "When the wind was with him his whiskers arrived a 
day before he did" 

According to Carl Sandburg, West Point wonders if this is poetry, Dartmouth says it 

is history and uses it as a textbook, but he himself doesn't know. This is an event 

we'll all be telling to our grandchildren fifty years from now. 

April 30, 1937 

Celia Gomberg displayed a long green scarf and played a violin for us at the Glee Club 
concert. She did some capable fiddling and the Glee Club did some capable singing, 
but I'll never forget that green scarf.

Rumors have been flying thick and fast the past few weeks. Rumors we have been 
hoping are far from true. But today they proved only too true. Dr. Scott is leaving 
us. He is going to Louisville, Ky. to be superintendent of schools. It is a great loss 
for Bridgewater, but a distinct gain for Louisville. 

June 5, 1937 

Biennial. Alumni parading. Speeches, speeches and more speeches. Big feed in 
Tillinghast — and half of the class working behind the scenes as waiters and dish-wash- 
ers. Old-fashioned gymnastics revived in the gymnasium to show alumni how they 
used to act when they were here. Dumbbell swinging was the thing in those days. 

June 9, 1937 

The best day of June — Sophomore girls shaking caterpillars from oak boughs. 

Sept. 15, 1937 

Hi, diary. Here I am back again. Uncle John Kelly is our new president and Mr. 
Davoren, from the State House, is down here to sign the men's absence slips and 
fulfill the other duties of the office of dean of men. Dr. Maxwell, from the Boston 
school system, is down here to teach in the lit. dept. and start the graduate school 
going. No kidding, the graduate school is really starting after centuries of talking. 
Doc Arnold, by the way, is co-graduate-school-operator — which will mean more wear 
and tear for his head. 

Sept. 29, 1937 

Miss Smith has announced that she is going to leave us for a sabbatical year at Harvard. 

Sept. 30, 1937 

Dr. Howard Haggard, of "Devils, Drugs, and Doctors" fame, came down from Yale 
today to lecture to us on "Medical Fads and Superstitions." We learned that it is 
not only the debutantes who have debutant's slouch and that it's not a good thing 
to have. He gave us the Latin name for the animal — but you can't expect me to re- 
member that. 

Oct. 1, 1937 

Miss Smith announced that she might stay here after all. 

Oct. 4, 1937 

Miss Smith announced that she thinks she'll stay at Harvard. 

Oct. 6, 1937 

Mr. Moss arrived from Harvard to take Miss Smith's place. He can pull the top map 

in Miss Smith's wall rack without getting out of his chair. 

Oct. 10, 1937 

Miss Smith back, Mr. Moss gone. 

Oct. 11, 1937 

Mr. Moss back, Miss Smith gone. 

Oct. 16, 1937 

Mr. Moss gone, Miss Mahoney here to take his place—or is it Miss Smith's, I've for- 
gotten now. 

Oct. 18, 1937 

Miss Smith back to say good-bye. Miss Mahoney has decided to stay here and Miss 

Smith has decided to stay there. 

Nov. 2, 1937 

Dr. Ch'ao-Ting Chi arrived to discuss the Chinese situation. We learned that there 
was a war in China and that Japan was the aggressor. The Chinese Communist ques- 
tion made his face red. 

Dec. 6, 1937 

Blanche Yurka (Madam Defarge to you) was dressed in a glittering blue gown — and 
wow, what a personality — it outglittered the glittering gown. After introducing us to 
Congreve's "Way of the World", and telling us how she knew Mary Pickford when, she 
came out in all the full glory of her immortal Madam Defarge. Dear Diary, this is 
what I call acting. 

Dec. 13, 1937 

Charlie Shaw gave a lecture on advanced paper folding in Miss Low's class. We all 

know how to make a toy hat or a toy boat out of an old New York Times. 

Dec. 14, 1937 

A training School child announced this morning that there was to be no school this 

afternoon because the president was going to be electrocuted. But to translate that 

Page fifty-six 

into adult English, Mr. Kelly is to be inaugurated as our college president. First an 
academic procession with a supermeligorgeous display of faculty caps and gowns and 
ribbons. A sheaf of speeches wherein someone summed up our prexy to a "T"— "liberal 
enough to be progressive, conservative enough to be valid." A reception with orchids 
and gowns, white ties and tails, frosted crumbs and pinwheel sandwiches, in the Boy- 
den Gymnasium. The Christmas dinner at Tillinghast wherein I again got my forks 
mixed but got the food straight. Afterwards a procession of Orientals to the tune of 
Handel's Largo in the Horace IVIann. Then the annual serenading of the faculty by 
the men. A cold night but they all survived the coffee and cigars passed out to them. 
And a final goodnight with a carol fest and an "Alma Mater" on the front steps of 
Boyden as the dormitory girls sleepily echoed the tunes from their beds. 

Jan. 27, 1938 

Hanya Holm arrived with six assistants. Say, I'm beginning to like this modern dance 
— even the duck waddles. And I'm liking it even more since I've found out that Hanya 
is to present this same program in Jordan Hall, Boston at $1.50 a ticket next week, 
while I'm seeing it for nothing. 

Feb. 4, 1938 

The Men's Club went to town with a tragi-comedy called "The First Year". Earl 
Haggerty and Kay Flaherty walked off with the leads and Mary Lou Quigley did a superb 
performance as a last minute emergency substitute. 

Feb. 11, 1938 

Mardi Gras again and this time with decent weather. Boyden Gym went Riviera in 
the light of the moon. Clem Daley and Polly Hull were crowned king and queen. 
Everyone went gay with a battle of flowers. And festivities ended with the crowning 
of King Lent alias Ed Senesac. 

March 8, 1938 

Dr. Yutaka Minakuchi arrived to discuss the Chinese situation from the Japanese 
angle and told us there wasn't any— situation I mean— and if there was, that Russia 
was the aggressor if it wasn't China. 

March 16, 1938 

Robert Peter Tristram Coffin and his moustache arrived. He told us that when he 
wanted to write a poem he always headed for a barn "for there is always a poem there" — 
and I add, if you want to read about a barn, go to R.P.T.C.'s poetry for there is always 
a barn there. 

March 23, 1938 

The Todd Fund reached its height when it gathered together representatives of three 
faiths; Father Reynolds, Rabbi Glazer, and Rev. Jennings, to discuss the "Future for 
Intergroup Relations in America". I think we all learned to better appreciate our 
neighbor, whatever his faith. 

March 30, 1938 

S.C.A. held its election and Connie — Sanderson of course — came out tops, with her 

room mate, Dutchie, and commuter Mary Judge as vice presidents. 

April 8, 1938 

Orchestra Concert with Walter Kidder as guest soloist. "None but the Lonely Heart" 
(Tschaikovsky's) brought down the house. And Mr. Kidder had to sing "Old Man 
River" to bring it back again. 

April 11, 1938 

Paper bag passed from one to another turned out to be a surprise package for Mr. Hunt 
until Bongerzone picked the green snake from the floor and threw it out the window. 
Culprit? That's what Mr. Hunt would like to know. 

April 29, 1938 

More music. This time the Glee Club concert with Howard Goding at the piano. Miss 

Rand was at her best as usual and Goding on an excellent program. 

May 3, 1938 

Still more music. This time the Lecture Fund presenting the W.P.A. Forum String 
Quartet and precipitating local musical storm with the playing of Piston's "Quartet 
No. 1 in C Major." Some say you can't call that stuff music. But, boy how I go for 
it. These W.P.A.ers aren't half bad. 

May 13, 1938 

More politics— or should I say elections. Bill McGhee arrives on top again as our 

senior year president. Congrats, Bill— and do as good a job as you've done up to now! 

Page fifty-seven 

May 16, 1938 

Phil Farnham took a stocking-foot parade from Mr. Davoren's room to Miss Mahoney's 
when a friend walked off with his shoes. Judy finally found the glass slippers and 
returned them to the Cinderella boy. 

May 26, 1938 

Still more music — I must be getting cultured — at least I'm not getting fed up with it. 
By the way, this time it was the Federal Music Project Brockton Band. We needed 
cotton stuffing for our ears because of the Horace Mann reverberations but the familiar 
selections didn't sound so bad when they were swung. Horace Donovan stole the show 
with a xylophone solo. How the jitterbugs loved to watch those fingers go. 

June 4, 1938 

Class picnic — and a boat trip down Narragansett Bay to Block Island. Pig tackling, 
rain, shore dinners, and seasickness combined to make an experience I'll never forget. 
The salt air certainly took the starch out of our class. 

June 10, 1938 

Graduation, and Dr. Scott back to visit us for a few hours. Junior girls out-Vassared 

Vassar with their daisies. 

Sept. 22, 1938 

Hi Ho, Hi Ho. 

It's off to school we go 

We hear the bell — 

And run pell mell 

Hi Ho, Hi Ho. 

Sweet September and time for more apple-polishing. It seems terrible to be a senior 

and have no one on whom to look down. And time too to hear Miss Lovett's latest 

stories of the Wild West. 

Sept. 23, 1938 

The wind can blow like hurricane 

An s'pose she blew some more. 

You can't get drowned on the Campus Pond 

So long you stay on shore. 

Sept. 24, 1938 

After a terrible night wondering whether I'd won or lost my bet on the church steeple. 
No school!!! I wandered down to the lower campus to watch the N.Y.A.ers saw up 
the fallen trees and thought that the old Campus Pond had blown away in the storm. 
Further check-up revealed that workmen had filled it in during the summer. Called 
up home to learn that one of the ships that pass in the night had anchored in the barn. 

Sept. 20, 1938 

"Skip" Howes of the grads, man of adventure, man of conversation, what a man! 

Oct. 9, 1938 

The Seniors realize they're taking History. The Seniors try to teach history, but one 

had to remind the class his subject was history and not "debunking de banks." 

Nov. 4, 1938 

Library Club, coached by Jane Austin, wins the three one-act play contest sponsored 
by the Men's Athletic Association. The M.A.A. presentation gave us Helen Edwards 
as Helen of Troy, the gal who launched a thousand quips. 

Nov. 18, 1938 

Ed "Billy the Boy Artist" Payne hopped half of Dickens' characters out of his memory 
on to an artist's easel and then obliged with sketches of Connie Sanderson with glasses 
nesting in her bangs, Mr. Durgin with a smile, and Vic Johnson with a red face. 

Nov. 21,1938 

The gentleman from Waids, taking the class pictures, took one look at Lilly Fischer 

and fainted. It must be her smile that got him — the "killer diller." 

Nov. 30, 1938 

Woodwardites swipe cheese from the dining hall and set out trap lines, so now their 

conversation is of Mice and Men. 

Dec. 13, 1938 

Dr. Faustus hit the deck in a not so bad Federal Theatre performance in Horace Mann 
Auditorium. Audience was amused by explosions and fires, the clown, and two mem- 
bers of the chorus, one in the right end and one on the left. Hope some school pro- 
duction might obtain such settings and lights. 

Page fifty-eight 

Dec. 15, 1938 

Christmas Banquet in close-cramped quarters. The hurricane not only blew some 
trees away, but it also blew some staging in— at Tillinghast anyways. After minutes 
of weary waiting, Parkinson broke the ice and started us eating. Was his face red 
when Fleming announced it to the gang! 

Jan 12, 1939. 

Cameron Beck — I missed it — am out training. Story going around has it he said the 
secret of success was written on the doors of the auditorium. Unfortunately the in- 
side of our doors read "pull". 

Jan. 19, 1939 

Al Dorosz wins by the nose in the Men's Club pie-eating contest. Mr. Durgin gets 

left out in the custard. But everyone had a good time. 

Feb. 14, 1939 

Mr. Reynolds started wielding a snow shovel and Walter Houston was the result. Cliff 
Reilly got jealous and started on his own — a snow Sphinx was the result. The Campus 
camera fiends started snapping, and posed beauties and the bust. 

Feb. 16, 1939 

B.T.C. hits the big-town papers with a picture of the snow sphinx in the Boston papers. 
Then Dartmouth got their sculpturing in the paper and ours melted away into in- 

April 14, 1939 

Louis Untermeyer — an anthology "maker" in the flesh. Sylvia floored Miss Hill by 

promising to read every poem in his collection. 

March 3, 1939 

Saw the famous Sammy after using his "Europe" as a Junior textbook. The Dutch- 
man pleaded that regarding nations we "protect the young, tolerate the dynamic, 
and let the old die in peace." He upset the calm of Huffy's geog classes but compli- 
mented the college on the students it sent to Clark. 

March 13, 1939 

It's a white winter, snow since Friday night means no school today. The snow babies 

shoveled snow at 30 cents per, organized snow ball fights, or went for long two-some 

walks. Miss Mullen added insult to injury by repeating Friday's dessert again — snow 


March 31, 1939 

Last day of training, but somehow I don't want to leave. No more lesson plans, dry 
lunches, or six o'clock awakenings. But also no more "we want a trainer", social chats 
with worshipping pupils, or high signs as I pass thru the halls. Praise be, I am a teacher. 

May 2-7, 1939 

No time to write until tonite — Sunday about ninety arty people did New York. Gog- 
gling a day at the Fair, stargazing at the Planetarium, eating in automats, limping 
through galleries and exhibits, and rubber necking in Radio City. I'll never be the 

June 2, 1939 

Class day for Alumni during the day and Campus Carnival at night.

Senior Promenade — Ah! 

June 7, 1939 

Class Picnic where I met the nicest people — right in my own class. Funny I never got 

to know them before. 

June 8, 1939 

Trunk is gone and so am I after packing my four-year-deep accumulations. The kids 
call my room "The Old Curiosity Shop". Love to send myself home by sticking stamps 
on my ears and having Walter Luce collect me for mailing. 

June 9, 1939 

I sleep-walked through the graduation exercises, nearly bawled because everyone yelled 
goodbye, and let myself be collected by the family. So this is graduation. So this 
was Bridgewater.

They are a happy gang, these graduate students. And they have their studious 
moments too. Some of them we have known in their previous years at Bridgewater. 
With the others we have soon become acquainted. It is only a year they have been 
with us as a group, but we have already formed many fast friendships. 


Nantucket Training Ship 
Hyannis Teachers College '38 
"Skip" has done his best to make us more Eskimo-minded. Maybe his expedition 
to the Arctic with MacMillan can explain that. 

Boston College '38 
Jerry has spent much of his spare time keeping fit over at the gym. 

Jackson '37 
Grace is enthusiastic over horseback riding, tennis, and books. 

Bridgewater Teachers College '38 
Violet has continued to lend her talents to the modern dancing classes.

Hyannis Teachers College '38 
The graduate representative finds time for reading, traveling, sailing, and sports 
in general. The record made by the Junior Varsity basketball team reflects his skill 
as a coach. 

Bridgewater Teachers College '38 
Another Bridgewater alumnus, back this time without his "bump"! 

Radcliffe '38 
Jean is an addition from one of our better known women's colleges. 

Hyannis Teachers College '38 
The answer to a maiden's prayer has been assistant lecturer to Miss Lovett. A 
blushing smile wins them all. 

Bridgewater Teachers College '37 
Another Bridgewaterite who couldn't stay away. 

Salem Teachers College '38 
The welcome addition to our hoopsters also spends odd moments on golf, photo- 
graphy, and tennis. 

Massachusetts State College '30 
He likes dogs, horses, guns, and just putterin'. 

Radcliffe '38 
Ski enthusiast and assistant to the alumni office. Her cellar study room is the 
graduate rendezvous for "studying." 

Bridgewater Teachers College '33 
Author of short stories — written for his own and the public amusement. He 
rides the hobby horse with dramatics, map-collecting, and landscaping. 

Bridgewater Teachers College '38 
Back for another year at his Alma Mater.

Having risen from the obscurity of the sophomore year, the Jolly Juniors had their first professional exper- 
ience. Training School until this year, so remote, suddenly became very real and was anticipated with all degrees 
of expectation. After the first few days of wondering what it was all about, we began to apply the theory we had 
been absorbing for the past two years and to learn devices and procedures. After eight weeks in the Training 
School, we came back to the Administration Building with a newly acquired sense of dignity, a slightly profession- 
al air, and a new appreciation of method and cultural courses.

We found time to relax from the serious side of a Junior's life by attending the class which was ,n the 

form of a rodeo. Nove. decorations and appropriate costumes he.ped to provide fun in the best Western trad,- 

1 The Sophomore-Junior Prom was one of the outstanding social events of the year As the Crystal Snow- 

Ba..; it featured a winter setting and had as its c.imax the se.ection of a snow queen. The fma. socal event was 

the class picnic at which informality and hilarity reigned. 

And now, at last, we're ready for our last year and looking forward to the new teaching experiences and many 
activities which will be ours as seniors. ^^ ^^^ ^^

Having suffered last year the indignities accorded the freshman at college, it was our turn in the fall to wreak 
our revenge upon the incoming freshmen. Enjoying to the utmost our first taste of authority and importance 
we planned and executed a fitting initiation program for the first week back at college. At the end of the week, 
however, we closed the initiation by entertaining the freshmen at a party held in the Gymnasium at which there 
was mutual cooperation between the two classes. Many new talents were discovered, friendships were made 
and general good feeling prevailed. 

The big social event of the year was the Crystal Snow Ball which the sophomores and the juniors arranged 
together. It was our first opportunity to help manage a large affair, and the support on the part of willing in- 
dividuals and the class as a whole was most gratifying. A large part of the class danced in the Gymnasium which 
was transformed into the northern setting, to the music of Art Davis' orchestra and witnessed the selection of

the Snow Queen. A committee of judges made up of members of the faculty honored one of the lovelier members 
of our class with the choice. . 

The class showed equal enthusiasm in supporting its annual social. Since it coincided *■ P»*"ck. 
Day, it was only fitting that it be a Shalelah Shuffle. A typical Irish country scene was reproduced m the Gym- 
nasium with green the predominating color. 

As the final event of the year, the class outing took the form of a boat trip. Enthusiastic accounts by the 
large number who went are proof of an eventful and thoroughly enjoyable day. 

We as sophomores have passed the half-way mark and are already looking forward to doing bigger and better 
things in the future. As individuals and as a class we hope to make the most of the many 
Bridgewater offers.

Our first year at college has been an exciting and eventful one. Every attempt was made by the older stu- 
dents to make us feel at home and a part of Bridgewater. The bewilderment of the first day was lessened by the 
obliging seniors who took us in hand and guided us about the college. The Big Sisters into whose care every 
freshman girl was given also helped us to find our way, familiarizing us with customs and traditions, and im- 
parting to us invaluable advise and information. The Big Sister — Little Sister party held later on in the fall 
encouraged many a friendship with games and refreshments. 

During the freshman initiation which lasted throughout our first week, the merciless sophomores required 
all women to wear green sun glasses, green ribbons in straight hair, and large name cards in front and back. The 
men in green ribbon ties and monkey caps provided much amusement at the expense of dignity, in front of the 
Administration Building. The sophomores showed their better natures, however, when they played host to the

wa Quired to make up a song upon which a committee composed of faculty members passed J^g-ent. In- 
dividual members of the class distinguished themselves by singing songs, p.ano and harmomca, baton 
swinging, and even a swing session. 

The Acquaintance Social was the first event in which we joined with all classes ' V^^L^^us" 
only members of our own class, but also upperclassmen and faculty members. The Freshman gave us 
our opportunity to return the hospitality of the other classes. The traditional Chnstmas Banquet was a mem- 
orable occasion for those few of us who were fortunate enough to squeeze .n. Then came our f.rst exper.ence

The Student Co-operative Association is the most important and active organization of this college. Every 
student automatically becomes a member of the association upon entrance. 

Meetings are held the first Friday of every month. Regular and punctual attendance is maintained so that 
the work at hand progresses rapidly and efficiently. 

The organizations represented on the Student Council are as follows: 1. Class Presidents; 2. Representatives 
from the divisions of all classes; 3. President of Day Student and Dormitory Council; 4. President of Men's Club; 
5. Executive Editor of "Campus Comment"; 6. Chairman of Standing Committees; and all officers of Student 
Co-operative Association. 

The Council conducted a drive at Christmas time to collect money for the needy. 

The whole council was ready at any time to extend hospitality to any visitors that came to visit our college. 
It is notable that our Council started a movement for left-armed chairs for left-handed people. We were very 
fortunate to have lessons in Parliamentary Law given to us by the Dean of Men, Mr. John L. Davoren. 

A student delegation was sent to the New England Teacher-Preparation Association and in the Spring an- 
other delegation attended the Convention of Eastern Professional Schools for Teachers.

To regulate the social life at college, the Social Calendar for the entire year was completed and posted soon 
after the opening of college in September. To develop and maintain high spirits of thought and action through- 
out the college, the Elections Committee carried on all college elections very efficiently. 

The members proved to be more than helpful in contributing their services to make "Open House" and Alum- 
ni Week-end exceptionally successful. The "World's Fair" — formal dance, held on December second, was the 
most outstanding accomplishment of its social calendar. 

Profits realized from various activities have helped greatly to provide furniture for two new recreation rooms, 
in Tillinghast and Woodward Dormitories. These rooms should enhance the fine tradition of student fellowship 
characterized by this, our college. 

The organization strives continually to improve the standards of Bridgewater Teachers College. This year 
the members have worked constantly to raise the standard of the honor system. With the fine cooperation of 
the faculty, we feel that this was a significant accomplishment. 

Students are encouraged, at all times, to present problems and suggestions that pertain to student life and 
student welfare. This year the decisions and problems brought before the association have been discussed open- 
ly, and have been acted upon without faculty assistance.

The number of girls living in the dormitories this year was much greater than it had been for the past few 
years with every available room occupied. However, everyone was helpful and cooperative, especially for Open 
House, Alumni Week-end, and when repairs had to be made as a result of the devastating hurricane of last Sep- 

This year we have improved our dormitory by adding new rugs and pictures to our reception rooms and by 
establishing and equipping a Social Activities Room, where men and women may get together on weekend nights 
for games, dancing, or social hours. 

Regular house meetings were held once a month by the dormitories at which time any questions or sugges- 
tions which the girls had were discussed, and problems raised at Dormitory Council meetings were presented. 
We tried to have some form of entertainment at every house meeting this year, with members of all classes offer- 
ing their talents.

This year we had an active council made up of the officers and twenty representatives of the day students. 
The council was elected by a new system. A special committee chose ten names from each class and from this 
number the student body elected five to represent the freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior classes in the 

In October, we held our annual "Big-Little Sister Party" in the Commuters' Room. The faculty was given 
a chance to get acquainted with the freshmen, participate in the games, and enjoy the doughnuts and cider. 

In our kitchen a colorful set of dishes has been added to the service for eight which we already had. In the 
Commuters' Room the tables and chairs have been painted to match the rest of the room, murals have been 
painted, and cheerfully colored drapes hung at the windows. For the convenience of the girls in the Social Room, 
a small maple eight-day clock has been added. 

We had a style show under the direction of Rose Leonard who, with professional models from B.T.C., exhibited 
the latest in fashions for women. This was followed by a series of lectures by professional women who gave dem- 
onstrations on the latest hair-dos; how to make-up, and how to wear the most suitable clothes for our particular 

Everyone turned out for the Commuters' Social on March Tenth, and for Open House at which parents of 
the students had an opportunity to renew acquaintances with the faculty and to observe some work and changes 
that have taken place during the year. The entertainment took place in the gymnasium under the direction 
of the physical education department, and was followed by a reception in Tillinghast Dormitory.

"S'instruire en s'amusant" est le but du Cercle Frangais, qui se compose de quarante membres infiniment 
interesses en tout ce qui est frangais. Ces membres trouvent leur source d'inspiration dans les deux mots 
"Charite" et "Fraternite". 

L'initiation des nouveaux membres, qui a eu lieu dans la salle reception de Tillinghast, comme d'habitude, 
fut tres impressive et inoubliable. Les seances de cette annee ou Ton etudia la vie de quelques grands person- 
nages frangais, notamment Marie Antoinette et Louis XIV, furent instructifs aussi bien qu'amusants. 

Deux des membres furent envoyes a la seance de la Modern Language Association a Simmons. Un bon nombre 
se rendit aux films frangais a I' University de Harvard et beaucoup des plus interesses saisirent I'occasion de lire 
quelques livres frangais de notre bibliotheque, surtout "Sous les Pieds de L'Archange", la plus recente acquisition. 

Au Bridge, auquel chaque membre amena son ami, on se rejouit de I'occasion de bavarder a son soul. De 
beaux prix furent distribues a trois joueurs heureux.

L'eclatante piece de Moliere — "Le Medecin Malgre Lui" — f ut presentee a la salle d'assemblee a une des seances 
de Cercle, auquel furent invites aussi les amis des membres. Tous etaient de I'avis qu'elle etait un succes fou, 
et d'avantage, qu'il fallait faire honneur aux acteurs pour leurs bonnes representations. Un petit resume fait 
en frangais servit a faire comprendre la piece. 

Un pianiste experiments franco-americain, qui nous entretint pendant une heure avec plusieurs agreables 
selections de compositeurs frangais, fut presents a une autre de nos seances. 

On cSlebra avec un programme de varietes le jour de poisson d'avril. 

D'avantage, les membres firent un voyage a Boston en avril, et assisterent a un film frangais. Ms visiterent 
aussi quelques musees, et dinerent a un restaurant frangais. On espere faire ce voyage une occasion annuelle.

Library Club carried on a full and varied program from the usual impressive initiation to the lively closing 
entertainment. Among books reviewed and discussed, the club particularly enjoyed "The Education of Hyman 
Kaplan" by Lionel Ross, "Alone" by Admiral Bird, and "Horse and Buggy Doctor" by Dr. Arthur E. Hertzler. 
Our faculty advisers, Miss Carter and Miss Vining, told us particularly of the advantages of the Heritage Club 
books. One meeting devoted to reviews was made especially lively by charades of titles — notable among these 
were "Pygmalion" and "Disputed Passage". 

In anticipation of the Federal Theatre Project production of "Dr. Faustus" we discussed the life of Marlowe 
and the plot of the play. For its annual trip to a Boston Theatre, the club this year chose to see Helen Hayes in 
"Victoria Regina" on January 11. Considering the lively discussion at the next meeting one might well con- 
clude that the club enjoyed the production. We found it particularly interesting to compare the version we saw 
to the "Victoria" of Lytton Strachey. 

Following another tradition the Library Club gave its usual assistance during Book Week. Members were 
on duty mostly for the display of fiction in Miss Hill's room but also helped in the library. Another tradition

much enjoyed was the annual speaker from Emerson to which a large number of guests was invited. The club 
also revived an old custom of hot dog sales in the dormitory as well as holding a very successful food sale in the 
rotunda, upholding our reputation of being good cooks as well as good readers. On Valentine's Day everyone en- 
joyed the original verses accompanying the gifts exchanged and all learned something new and interesting about 
old customs. Games and refreshments completed one of the most successful evenings of the year. 

After several members had seen "Pygmalion" they exchanged ideas on it for our benefit and gave us interest- 
ing side lines while the group took turns reading aloud from the play. Another group activity long awaited and 
truly as grand in realization as in anticipation was the choric speaking attempt led most ably by Miss Hill. 

Most of all, Library Club is proud of that silver cup on display in the library. All the members of the cast 
and in fact all members of the club worked hard to help the director, Jane Austin, make "Pink for Proposals" 
the best one-act play in the competition. We enjoyed producing it and look forward to a continuation of the

Dramatic Club started the year with try-outs for new members and those fortunate enough to be selected, 
together with new members chosen the previous spring, were added to the organization. Special pins and station- 
ery were awarded the members. The fall was devoted to the preparation and rehearsals for the first production 
of the yea'r, "Onward to Happiness". At Christmas time, in keeping with the Yuletide spirit, "Why the Chimes 
Rang" was presented in chapel. In the spring, "Annie Laurie" was presented as the final dramatic production 
of the year. 

Besides offering entertainment for the college, the Dramatic Club enjoyed a pleasant social year. At the 
regular meetings, enlightening discussions on drama and dramatics were followed by a social hour. The Christ- 
mas party at Tillinghast and the theatre party in May were held for the enjoyment of the whole club. Much of 
the success of the club has been due to the time and effort devoted to it by its director, Miss Low.

This year the staff of our college paper, "Campus Comment", successfully inaugurated a bi-monthly pub- 
lication. The student body was more responsive because of this change. 

The social calendar of the staff has not been active as in past years. In the late fall the group enjoyed an 
anniversary tea at the home of Miss Lovett, faculty advisor. 

Food sales were held in order to raise funds which would cancel the tentative loan given to each of the dele- 
gates attending the Columbia Scholastic Press Conference when "Campus Comment" was awarded third prize. 

A style show was presented under our auspices in April in the auditorium. Models were selected from the 
student body. A novel culmination, a prom scene, made the style show one to be remembered. 

Members of the staff see a promising future for our paper — one of improvement and success.

Topics of the Day Club began the year with one of the largest memberships ever. The members of all classes 
of the college were invited to an open meeting in October to decide if this was a club which they would care to 
join. This first meeting was built around the strategic position of Czechoslovakia in relation to Germany and 
the future of this very young republic. 

A social get-to-gether to welcome all members and help them get acquainted was in the form a of weenie 
roast. Under a very able committee fun, food, and exercise was had by all at the spacious West Bridgewater 
Park, an ideal place for any picnic. 

Realizing that actual experiences and contacts with people mean much more than the often highly colored 
stories from books and periodicals the club has tried to carry out the idea of bringing some good speakers to its 
meetings. The first speaker to visit with us this year was Charles Snowgate of the U. S. Marines. From his 
experiences in China he told of the people and conditions there and the general attitude of the Chinese to the 
Americans. At a later date and using an entirely different topic, Mr. Durgin of the faculty was presented. In 
his usual amusing and intelligent manner he spoke about "Bridgewater as I See It". 

It is not necessary however that the club have speakers for each of its meetings because the people in the club 
are themselves, well versed on the topics of the day. The Jewish Refugee problem, the censorship of the radio 
by the Federal Government and the outstanding problems of our world today have been dealt with at various 
meetings in a most interesting way. It has been the aim of the club to give all of its members a chance to argue 
and ask questions and it encourages this at all times.

At the beginning of the year the members of the student body of the college were invited to visit the initial 
club meeting and decide whether they wished to join. About twenty new members from all the classes in the 
college were invited to attend the annual initiation party. Games and tricks to test the intelligence and stability 
of new members were conducted. 

To the delight of nature lovers and hobbyists a nature walk was conducted in the Garden under the super- 
vision of Mr. Stearns, club advisor, and an authority on plant and animal life. Humorous and true stories added 
to much factual material made the afternoon interesting. 

Because of the crowded holiday season at Christmas, Hobby Club broke precedent and held a post-New Year's 
Party, which was a marked success. Each member brought in a small gift representing either her own or a 
friend's hobby. 

Other meetings have been devoted to speakers, who have unusual and noteworthy avocations. Naturally, 
the favorite has been our own Mr. Stearns who has exhibited his coin, stamp, pencil, and button collections — 
and followed these with vivid descriptions. Miss Caldwell, of the faculty, spoke on "Physical Education as a 
Hobby" and aided those of us who lacked a sports hobby to get busy immediately. From among the student 
body, collectors, including Louise Forsyth, Barbara Dobbyn, and Irma Wall have addressed the club. 

The hope and theme of Hobby Club is the acquiring of a new hobby or the development of a new one. The 
club has a new one in its scrap book project. It is the common objective of the members to work as a group on 
scrap books which will be sent to the children's rooms in the nearby hospitals, that they might be enjoyed by many.

"Dig and delve. Dig and delve" is a quotation which very appropriately expressed what the majority of the 
meetings of the Garden Club were like this past year. During their gatherings at the green house, the members 
could be seen busily at work planting bulbs, making cuttings, or doing other phases of garden work. 

At Christmas time the members aided in decorating the auditorium and dormitories. 

In addition to work, very interesting cultural programs were held which consisted of a lecture of immediate 
interest to all by Mr. Stearns on "Damage done by the Hurricane to Trees" and another talk given by our Presi- 
dent, Naomi Simon, on "Flower Gardens for the Home." 

Besides the regular meetings the members cooked lunches out-of-doors at the garden fire place. 

In the Spring, hundreds of students from the College enjoyed the trips to the Arnold Arboretum and Flower 
Show in Boston sponsored by this club. This year the club itself held a flower show. This special feature attrac- 
ted many students and teachers who had never visited the garden and greenhouse. Attractive corsages and 
plants were sold. 

The significance of the TC emblem is imparted to the students only after a year's membership in the club.

Science Club has spent a most active year, beginning with the initiation of new members at the West Bridge- 
water Memorial Park. A weenie roast was the high spot of the event. 

A hike to the Lighthouse at Powder Point Beach was taken in order to collect specimens of shells. These 
were used for study, and attempts were made to identify them and classify them. This study also included a trip 
to the Museum of Natural History, where Dr. Rice talked to us about shells. 

On the more social side of the club's activities was the annual Christmas party held at Miss Graves' home. 

Interest in socialized medicine was keen and the members participated in a debate on this subject. We were 
fortunate in having Dr. Mandlestam, a local physician, who spoke in favor of it, and Dr. Schwartz, from the State 
Farm, who spoke against it. 

For its chapel program, the club presented Mr. Carl W. Buckheister, secretary-treasurer of the Massachusetts 
Audubon Society, who gave an illustrated lecture on the "Audubon Nature Camp and Its Activities." 

Special interest was maintained in current events and new ways and methods in science, in anthropology, 
in taxidermy, concerning which we enjoyed a lecture and demonstration, and in the study of and research in 
cancer, about which Dr. Bradley gave an illustrated talk. 

Spring activities included an all-day trip to Woods Hole, the Bird Day trip to Sharon, and the final picnic.

Kindergarten-Primary Club tries to plan a well-rounded and interesting program for the entire year. In the 
fall we started out with an Initiation Party which served to acquaint the new members with the aims and ideals 
of the club as well as to give them an enjoyable time. 

During the year we have heard the following speakers: 

Miss Flora Nolden, Supervisor of the Works Progress Administration Nursery Schools, told us about her work 
and how much it contributed to the lives of the children who attended. 

Mrs. Edna L. Bedford, Child Consultant of William Filene's Sons Company, spoke on the topic "Growing Up 
With Toys". To illustrate her talk, Mrs. Bedford brought along a selection of toys, books, and games. 

Miss Helen F. Loud, who is interested in kindergarten, spoke to us on how children can be more successfully 
trained in reading readiness in order to meet the requirements set up in the first and second grades. 

Miss Ruth Davis, principal of the Bridgewater Training School, spoke about the work expected of trainers 
in the elementary grades, both in outside practice teaching and in the training school. 

Miss Mary L. Marks, our club advisor and the kindergarten teacher in the training School, told us about the 
curriculum of the kindergarten. 

For our banquet and final meeting in May, the speaker was Miss Pauline Smith, well known in kindergarten 

Our club gives an excellent opportunity to learn new things about the field of kindergarten-primary educa- 
tion as well as a chance for an enjoyable social time with other club members.

Student Fellowship is the organization that meets every possible Sunday evening in the Congregational 
Church of Bridgewater. 

It is for every college student who wishes to broaden his cultural and spiritual outlook. 

The general theme of the year has been "Service to Society". Some of the meetings during the year include; 
"The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children" with the Secretary of the society as speaker and Chief 
Moore of the town police staff telling of his connection with the organization. Superintendent Warren's ex- 
planation of his work at the State Farm with a Field Trip Inspection of the Farm by the Student Fellowship; 
Rabbi Levi of Brockton who discussed the Jewish situation in a very enlightening fashion; Miss Warburton, a 
missionary on furlough, who told about her work in the Phil I ipines; "The Child and his School" discussed by 
Miss Meranda Prentiss of the field of Social Service; and Social Problems by prominent persons of the particular 

Besides the regular type of meeting, Student Fellowship had a very inspirational Candlelight Communion 
Service at Christmas Time; a Sunday morning church service conducted entirely by the club; and an evening 
service open to the public.

The aims of Der Deutsche Verein are to have as much conversational German as possible, an understanding 
of German culture, and a feeling of Gemutlichkeit. 

A realization of these aims comes from various sources. The Pfeiffer family of Brockton entertained us at 
our Christmas meeting with songs and stories of German customs. Refreshments of German pastry helped to 
make the program complete. 

The chapel program won the praises of the faculty and students. The typical Hofbrau scene with singing 
waiters and waitresses; the folk dances, accompanied by a swing minded orchestra; the singing of the Schnitzel- 
bank by the audience; all these factors contributed to make an interesting program. 

Miss Mary Darrah of the John Hancock School in Quincy contributed to our cultural background by giving 
us a clearer understanding of life in Germany. Her interesting experiences on her bicycle trip through the coun- 
try, her collection of pictures showing the scenic wonders of the country, received our attention. 

To terminate the year's program, the club visited some of the Germanic Museums in Boston and had dinner 
at the Hofbrau. 

The contact of members of the club does not end with the arrival of June. A Round-Robin letter keeps us 
informed of our friend's activities during the summer and reveals our ability to write German.

The first part of the Women's Glee Club season was devoted to the preparation of our third radio broadcast 
of carols over Station W. E.E.I. After this, practice for the annual spring concert on April twenty-eighth was 
begun. We were fortunate in having a well-known concert artist as our guest soloist. 

The Choir sang every Friday morning in Chapel. 

The largest IVIen's Glee Club in the history of the Organization presented a most successful concert in the 
Horace Mann Auditorium on March third. This was the first concert in recent years, and is a step toward the 
re-establishment of the concert as an annual presentation. 

The A Cappella Group and Nathan Gottschalk, a prominent violinist, assisted in making this concert a success. 

The Orchestra gave an ambitious concert March twenty-fourth with the favorite Earle Spicer, baritone, as 
guest soloist. Making his second appearance with the orchestra within the past few years, MK Spicer won par- 
ticular applause for his presentation of American folk ballads. 

We owe our appreciation to our director, Miss Frieda Rand, and our accompanists, Esther Kelley and Alice 
Cole, for their skillful and conscientious guidance throughout the year.

A new policy for conducting club business and for providing the club programs was instigated in Camera 
Club this year. An executive committee consisting of club officers and four elected club members discharged 
all club business. A program committee elected by the club made plans for valuable and interesting meetings. 
Professional speakers from such places as the Eastman Company alternated with discussion meetings. The 
meeting following that of the speaker was used for analyzing the talk of the speaker. Members then submitted 
pictures, to illustrate these new points they received, as a culmination of their work. 

A new dark room with new equipment in the basement of Tillinghast has been the club's proudest attain- 
ment and the envy of non-members. 

Mr. Tyndall's lecture on the British Isles was illustrated by pictures which he took while visiting there and 
which were so beautiful that they are still being discussed. 

A successful and enjoyable year closed with a club banquet.

Newman Club is organized on a three-fold basis — cultural, social and spiritual. This year has been a diffi- 
cult one since the club was handicapped by having no definite meeting place. However, despite this disadvan- 
tage, there were a few events of particular interest to the entire group. The Yuletide season brought the Christ- 
mas party with its gay entertainment. At this time also the annual Christmas charity basket was again made 
up for distribution to the needy. 

One of the interesting speakers of the year was Mr. Thomas Dorgan who lectured on the Teacher's Oath Bill. 
The most important activity of the year was the Communion Breakfast held in May. The Club received Com- 
munion in a body and then enjoyed a breakfast. At this time the new officers for the next year were installed 
and the Club also had the pleasure of hearing inspiring talks given by a group of fine speakers.

The most outstanding accomplishment of W.A.A. this year was the Alumni Co-Recreation Sports Day which 
was held on the first Saturday in March. This was the first event of its kind and we sincerely hope that it will 
continue each year. Men and women graduates returned for an afternoon of team games and co-recreation 
activities, followed by a dinner in the commuter's room and the annual men's basketball games between college 
and Alumni. Dancing concluded our first Annual Sports Day and we feel that it was a success. 

Due to the hurricane and fire hazards which prevailed in the fall the annual fall Supper Hike had to be post- 
poned. However, several Saturday bicycles hikes were organized and they were well supported. 

In October four delegates attended the conference at North Adams Teachers College and brought back val- 
uable information about Women's Athletic Associations in other Teachers colleges. 

In February, Bridgewater girls journeyed to Salem Teachers College for a Basketball Play Day. Eight players 
were selected from each class and although our victories were few and far between we think the trip was well 
worthwhile. It made all the girls appreciate more the large gymnasium and the complete equipment with which 
we are provided. 

The point system and the emblem have both been changed this year in order to make the system more effi- 
cient. From now on emblems will be awarded on a class basis. 

The banquet in May and Campus Carnival in June brought W.A.A. activities to a close.

Living up to the expectations made for it the previous year, the Men's Athletic Association has had a notable 
year in every way. The basketball team, an unusually tall one, was outstanding both for the teamwork and 
baskets scored. Baseball, soccer, track, and tennis teams were all fairly successful, although the latter suffered 
as the result of injury to its ace player. 

Among the changes made in the Association was the addition of the managers as well as the captains of the 
major varsity sports to the Athletic Association Board. Also, a new publicity committee was formed which kept 
the athletic activities before the public eye, particularly through sports columns and articles in the newspapers. 

Besides athletics, the association also sponsored a competition for three one-act plays which aroused con- 
siderable attention. The semi-formal Banner Dance which the Association organized was in the best college 
style and well attended. The annual spring banquet brought the activities to a close.

Boyden Men's Club is designed to permit all the men of the college to know each 
other better and to bring them together as a unit. Under the leadership of Harry Dunn, 
a series of get-togethers was sponsored which was definitely successful as a means of 
creating better mutual understanding and friendship among the members of the 
club and between them and the men of the faculty. Smokers and entertainments 
were held, rather than the usual dramatic presentation. Opportunity was provided 
for hearing interesting speakers and for all members to display hidden talents which 
were received enthusiastically. 

The annual Father and Son Banquet and entertainment in May brought the Club's 
program to an enjoyable conclusion.

This year, in the 1939 Alpha, we have tried to show in the illustrations the activities 
with which Miss Burnell was connected. 

The classes plate designed by Elizabeth Lawrence represents Miss Burnell's interest 
in her choir. 

The S.C.A. plate designed by Muriel E. Logan depicts Miss Burnell's chief duty 
and interest; the principalship of Training School. 

The activities plate designed by Muriel E. Logan illustrates another phase of Train- 
ing School — that of the playground. 

Much time and effort have been spent in preparation of these plates— we hope 
they please.

The trumpet call represents the call to duty for the seniors. 

The oak boughs, held by the freshmen and sophomores symbolize the everlasting 
protection of the college. 

The daisy-chain, carried by the junior women represents a guard of honor for

The ivy, which is planted and also carried by each graduate, symbolizes the spirit 
of comradeship and good fellowship. 

The Alma Mater, sung by the seniors at the conclusion of the march, signifies the 
continual renewal of their loyalty for the college.

They made me a socialist! They argued on the necessity of socializing at the 
beginning of one's college career. They convinced me. I went. 

Minus an escort and any knowledge of the terpsichorean techniques but possessing 
a spirit of willingness, I arrived at the social. It is not necessary to mention the half 
hour I spent before the wicked queer mirror in the downstairs gym, where I tried to 
dress my locks (but found myself in everyone else's hair), to apply lipstick, powder 
and perfume all of which made me smell like a funeral. 

Following tradition I ascended the stairs, stole stealthily to the door leading to 
the receiving line and stopped. I fixed my face with a six-teeth smile, summoned my 
courage and walked bravely towards the line. 

With genuine friendliness I put forth my hand to the first member of the squad, 
who ignored it and left me standing with one hand in mid-air and the other one twisted 
around the usher's arm. Believing that experience is the best teacher, I decided not 
to offer my hand to the next guest. However, this one thrust forward his hand with 
such unexpectancy that it took me several minutes to unwind my fingers from my 
handkerchief to return the gesture. Repetitions of similar situations continued until 
what seemed like an endless finish was reached at long last. 

But where was I? At the end of the receiving line with no male to dance with and 
no way to return with nonchalance to the wall. I looked on all sides trying to kid my- 
self that some men might be considering me as a potential partner. I overestimated 
my appearance. I suffered a year that minute until I decided to sneak around the rear 
of the receiving line! It worked! 

In a moment I was just another decoration on the wall but ostensibly enthusiastic 
as a radio announcer. A hybrid of brass and percussion echoed and re-echoed through- 
out the dance mecca. I surveyed the swingsters. Rugged individualists! One couple 
thought they were shagging but I did that step when I froze my feet. A tall fellow with 
more legs than he needed was jiving and was wondering what his partner was doing. 

Dismay, despair and discouragement swept over me as I enviously watched the 
dancers. I lowered my head and muttered a prayer of salvation from boredom and 
social disgrace. I looked up! Here was what the doctor ordered coming in my direc- 
tion. But this Apollo swept by me like a clean broom. I waited a few seconds and 
then followed him, but he was as elusive as gelatin. I lost him to a senior. 

Back to the wall I went. Then suddenly a man approached, called me a worm 
and asked me to wiggle. My obvious surprise and gratitude added another rung to 
the ladder of this college boy's egotism. 

Grasping me with a Sonnenburg grip and placing my cheek against his fuzzy one, 
my partner wove me into a terpsichorean pattern from which even Rogers could not 
unweave. We danced the international dip, a blending of the Irish jig, the Polish hop, 
Lambeth walk, Spanish tango, and American jive until the steps became as confused 
as macaroni. In two steps he had manoeuvered me out of the dance traffic, but it 
was growing increasingly impossible to keep up with the huge steps my partner was 

taking. Perhaps it was the size of his feet, which were not exactly big but I've seen 

small ferry boats, too. 

To keep the conversational ball rolling he talked about the orchestra, which was 
having a rehearsal at our expense: the only thing for which it could be hired being to 
break leases. 

Having exhausted the floor, the guests, the orchestra, and the college in general 
as topics of conversation I confined myself to dancing, but it proved to be solitary con- 
finement, for my partner continued to violate all dance regulations. The torture 
continued! I had to endure the social suffering because I knew that with such a small 
number of stags one could not be a chooser. 

After the third number my partner muttered his gratitude and I mine, because 
the end had come. I had taken my first and last step in the march of socialism. I'll 
never again be a parlor pink.

We are commuters, and there are many of us. We get up early in the morning 
in order to be on time. Always early, we never miss a class. In an automobile, bus, 
or train, cramming silently and frantically for the Junior economics examination 
scheduled for the last period. We glance hastily out of the window noticing the black- 
ness of a farm house in the white snow. The roofs of the house and the barn are heavy 
with snow. The silo is beautifully curved, and there are streaks of platinum blue, 
making it beautifully round. All the girls in back sing happily. We-up-front hate 
them for their happiness — we are so deep in the Equation of Exchange and index num- 

Arriving, we hurry down the back-door path of the college where all the cold winds 
have collected out of malice, probably. Our lockers are very untidy with all the books 
and old papers that fall out on the floor. There is really no time to pick up anything; 
it is best to leave the books there on the floor and go to class. 

During classes all morning, we are worried about the economics test and can't 
listen to anything. When the morning is over, we have drawn four ladies, at least, 
all dressed in the latest fashion — the way we should like to be dressed. One of us has 
drawn snakes and a devil. We begin to get apprehensive about the chapters we have 
never read — there are five or six of them. 

During lunch hour, we make as much noise as possible, and it is hard to hear any 
announcements. We eat our sandwiches swiftly and only the dutiful ones among 
us eat the crusts. Some of us eat all our cake, leaving the frosting until last. 

Then some of us go to the gym to dance or to watch the others, our eyes consider- 
ing and critical, some of us study, hidden behind books, some of us go to the library, 
draw a chair to the window and watch everyone on the campus. We chuckle to our- 
selves as the girls go by in their red wool jackets and yellow hats and their crumpled 
reversibles. Sometimes there are puddles for them to jump over. It is best when it 
rains, the rain topaz and purple on the campus. It is better still when the purple 
beech tree comes into leaf. 

All the first period after lunch we are a little dazed and absent-minded. We take 
dutiful, copious notes, making captions in the margins. 

Next a study period and we all go down to the commuter's room to discuss eco- 
nomics. It is too noisy to think. Very seriously we begin, "MV+M' V' = P T." A 
little blonde sophomore at the next table says discouragingly, "We're trying to study 
over here. Can't you keep still?" We ignore her with frosty composure. A freshman 
girl comes up and says worriedly, "My name's on the dean's list. I wonder what I 
did." A fat girl with a grieved expression pouts, "No matter how much I study, I flunk 
every test." 

A girl with a buttercup complexion sits on the table and motions dramatically 
with her hands. "Of course, he never asks me to dance with him." The girl with her 
answers enthusiastically "But darling, I've lost pounds since I went on that vegetable 

Finally there is no time to study, and we must go to economics. There are three 
questions on the board, and forgetting all the material we have learned, we write some- 
thing . . something . . . until our hands ache and we must throw down our pens. 

At last the day is over and we go home again in our buses and automobiles and 

You have probably seen us in the corridors ... on the stairs . . . studying . . .

Close up the Princess — close up Broadcove — the bowling alleys — Boston Theaters — 
New York concert halls— it's Saturday night at B.T.C. Saturday night plus winter plus 
a little bit of pig and a lot of wind. There are lads in scanty clothes and a referee in 
queer ones — and two sober visaged individuals on the side lines to tear their hair — 
swear, and a few assorted individuals are sprinkled about also to tear their hair and 
swear but at different times. That is important, at different times, or else people will 
think you agree with the coach, and nobody ever agrees with a coach, except anxious 
substitutes. Add a large female element to screech when things go wrong and scream 
when things go right, or the other way around. They sound the same. Maybe there 
are a few that know why they're there, W. A. A. officials, the rest have fun. 

All basketball games are divided into two groups, one group made up of tall, man- 
ly, handsome lads. Bold, dashing, fearless, brilliant, they are the "good guys," and 
win or lose they are always the better team. If they lose by 40 points, they're still 
the better team. Either the ref was crooked, or the floor was slippery, or they all had 
the chicken pox, the floor was too small, or too large, or just right and they couldn't 
believe it, or (a special list of 1200 authentic reasons for losing basketball games appears 
in this book (see page 386ff). The other droops (should read "groups" darn these 
proof-readers) are known in little boy circles as the "bad guys." They are invariably 
ugly, mean, unfair, despicable dogs, unfit to play with "good guys." This, of course, 
does not include the fair lads from Fitchburg, Hyannis, Salem, etc. — They are just 
victims of unfortunate circumstances. You know Bridgewater, a small college — 
couldn't hold them all. Well, the good guys throw the "thing" at the hoop at one end, 
and the bad guys at a similar receptacle at the other. Wait, just a minute, one of the 
bad guys has an intelligent face. What's the story here? Oh, he's the referee, and 
we hired him. Oh! — all right, then. The five biggest fellers on each team are taking 
off their sweaters, and-look-hey-stop! "Ref," they're taking off their pajamas pants. 
Oh, I see, little pants underneath, cute. I simply couldn't imagine. Here they come! 
Clap, clap, clap. 

Time to begin — scorers ready? — timers ready? I've seen hundreds of games and 
no timer has yet dared say "no" — queer. Captain Augustine ready? — Captain Reidy 
ready? (note — this name and others herein are products of the author's imagination 
and should in no way be associated with any living person; but if you promise not to 
tell anyone but your own circle of chance acquaintances this could mean Abe Brenner 
of Salem Teachers. It doesn't, of course, but it could). Oh well, Captain Augy has 
been ready since his seven course dinner at six (six of which were cornflakes, training, 
you know. The other was lemon meringue pie — a man's got to eat.) Captain Reidy 
has been reidy all his life. The ref puts the whistle in his mouth, takes it out, curses- 
demands another. No whistle in the house. Poor guy stuck all night with a licorice 
whistle, and him brought up on assorted fruit flavors. Lap it ref and let's get going. 
He raises it to start the game, and in rushes a substitute. Zcybxlykuzzlysk is out 
(one of the bad guys). The scorer refuses to handle Zcybxlykuzzlysk, too bad. Zcybxly- 
kuzzlysk gets a big hand as he dashes off to the showers. He would have played a great 
game. Ray Creampuff to go in his place, good man, (I know whatyou're thinking — 
you think I mean Fitchburg's all sport star, Ray Creaner — nonsense!) 

Cheep, cheep, the whistle speaks for itself— 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-time out (bad guys) 
2-2-2-2-2-2- half time— (good and bad guys) 2-2-2-2-2-2-X-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-cheep, 
cheep. Hurry, the game is over. You'll see it all in tomorrow's sport page. How 
B.T.C.'s defense weakened in the middle of the second half (X marks the spot.) And 
then swiftly and silently, relentlessly the enemy struck, taking advantage of a tactical 
error — too many Bridgewater men deployed to the right. Swarms of enemy infantry 
pierced the ranks, limped nimbly up to the hoop, and threw it through, right through. 
From then on Bridgewater went beserk. After the game Clem Daly was heard to say, 
"I didn't know what happened to us — just the breaks of the game, I guess." And 
Freddy Martin, crying in the locker room, blurted out — "I could have stopped it" — 

Page one hundred and six 

and Jim Sampson — "my man— my man". Woodward, Donahue, Sparkes, Costigan, 
Tobin, Dowd, DiNardo, Murphy, (in unison) "a sob, good, sob, record, sob, spoiled, 
sob, sob." Enter Coach Meier— stillness— quiet, quiet! Never mind, men, there's 
always another game,— but we've got to practice and practice hard next week. One 
of these days a team is going to get two baskets on us. Then where will we be? So 
another win for the Maroon and Gray of Bridgewater and— what? you thought it was 
Maroon and White. It was, last year. Next year more good basketball, and another 
good team, Captain Henry Woodward, and the boys of the Maroon and Black. Keep 
away, laundryman, it's cheaper to change the name. 


Whistling closer. . . . 
Star corners catch 
Lights of sunrise 

Eileen Sanford 


Once I heard a rabbit 
Scream in fright 
When I came 

around the bend 

in the path 
Too swiftly. 

Now I, 

Feeling the gold-dark eyes 

From the burrow, 

Go quietly as briar-flowers 

Slipping sideways 

Between red thorns. 



Stand still 

A moment! 

A black butterfly 

With top-heavy wings 

Is throbbing slowly 

On an elderberry umbrella. 

A breath of most delicate 
Wind ... even . . . 
Would send it shattered 
Among elderberry leaves.

One of our most vivid memories is of the man who first made our class 
welcome at college. We are thankful that he was with us during two of our 
four years. An idealist, and an ideal, he instilled in us love for our college 
and enthusiasm for our chosen profession.
